No I didn't know him, I just find people my records are connected to and I find them in death records and places that give the dates and places.
|Karen||John Dieterich Failing Sr# 76622848|
I've been a member of FindaGrave for several years, but only recently really got into genealogy. In tracing my family back to John Dieterich Failing Sr, I have a question about his children listed. There are several children listed near the beginning of his Memorial page, but then there are links of his children's names below that, but they are different than the ones listed above. I know some of the links are "calculated links," but it leaves me wondering which set of children's names to go by. Can you shed some light on all this? Thanks!

|Becky||Venita E Coffman edit request|
I saw that you had put in for an edit for Venita E. Coffman buried at Trissel Cemetery. You show her maiden name to be Hale. Are you sure you have the correct Venita Coffman? I found a death notice for her and she was of West Carrollton, but had died in Reno, N.D. An Ancestry entry for her shows her parents were John Wesley Rankin and Elizabeth Leatherman. I keep thinking that I saw a Venita L. Coffman that had Hale as her maiden name, but I will have to try to locate that record to verify. I'll have to see if I can locate an obituary for her to hopefully give me a clue to her maiden name.
If I cannot verify a different maiden name for her, I will be happy to put through your request. Thank you for your help. I appreciate it.

|newchances2||Abbie Clark, New England Cemetery|
Hi. It looks to me like you're quite the pro at this. I found a request you made to get a picture of the headstone for an Abbie Clark at New England cemetery in Cheney, WA. In March of this year someone tried to find this and several other headstones to no avail. Yesterday I found a website (http://www.mrail.net/data/cemete/wash/spokane/neweng/england.htm) that includes a, "burial list(which was)transcribed from the Sexton files of New England Cemetery and my (Maggie Rail's)survey of the cemetery," Unfortunately her research found that many headstones no longer exist. She has a photo of all existing stones and markers as of May of 2006. Most are Funeral Home markers. Names on her list that are followed by and asterisk * are those she found no marker for. Unfortunately Abbie Clark's marker was not found.
i have reason to believe that mr. browning was the father of twin girls anna marie and elizabeth browning born between 1886- 1888, census shows that william browning was a farm hand of thomas baker berry in charles county mayland 1880, among mr. berry house hold was his daughter alzine sarah berry, it is known by my family that maragret hawkins and anna marie hawkins were living in the alexius middleton household in piscataway district of maryland1900. it is known thru census records that elizabeth browning was a servant in the clifford t. berry houshold he lived in waldorf md. clifford t. berry was alzine berry middletons brother' anna marie hawkins, really named browning is my fathers mother, my grandmother, it is known by public census records that anna m browning was listed in the household of livingston browning district of columbia it is known that my grandfather william e willett sr. married anna marie hawkins, but there is a mystery of who maragret hawkins was, was she anna maries mother or aunt or ?

Hi there... I left a picture for memorial 172552144 listed in cemetery records as Mary A. Cougar. The tombstone is very hard to read but I think it's Mary Angeline Conger. See what you think. It's in lot 130 and I didn't see any Cougars there. Best, Kristin
